I discovered this while searching for something else, and knew that others would experience their own Stimpy Squeel (“Oh JOY!) upon seeing this!
These editions sell out very quickly, and IDW doesn’t reprint them (WHY NOT?), so sell some blood, dig into those couch cushions, or use that tax rebate you’re gonna get when you finally file your tax return for 2011!

WHAT IS AN ARTIST’S EDITION?
AN ARTIST’S EDITION PRESENTS COMPLETE STORIES WITH EACH PAGE SCANNED FROM THE ACTUAL ORIGINAL ART.
While appearing to be in black and white, each page was scanned in color to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—for instance, corrections, blue pencils, paste-overs, all the little nuances that make original art unique. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.
